According to the company statement, Hungary will start receiving Gazprom's gas via TurkStream, a pipeline running from Russia to Turkey across the Black Sea, and the pipelines of southeastern Europe beginning from October 1, 2021.

The contracts envisage supplies of up to 4.5 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas annually, of which 3.5 bcm will be transported through Hungary's interconnector with Serbia and 1 bcm -- via the pipeline running from Austria.
